Did You Know
The Woods and Wheels ATV Club repaired a quarter mile section of the
Black Gate Snowmobile Trail. Repairs were required after heavy summer rains.
Partnering with the Becker County’s Natural Resources Department it took our
club twelve hours, 109 yards of gravel, three Bobcat loaders, and five pickups
& dump trailers to repair the trail.
(See our Slideshow or the DL News article.)
The Woods & Wheels ATV Club based in Detroit Lakes is proud to
present members of the Trail Ambassador Program Sponsored by the Minnesota
Department of Natural Resources.
To become a Trail Ambassador, each member is required to be a DNR Certified Youth Safety Instructor. This course is self-study program that includes classroom training and a hands on practical test. Once volunteers are certified as instructors, they register with the DNR Safety and Education section and spend a very full day of classroom training in the ways of the Volunteer Trail Ambassador Program.
The Volunteer Trail Ambassador Program was started by the DNR in 2007. Since its inception over 225 program Volunteers have been trained in monitoring the Grant-In-Aid ATV trail systems throughout Minnesota. The volunteers are trained in Trail Safety, reporting trail hazards, meeting and greeting riders at the trail heads and on the Trail and answering questions the trail users may have regarding the trail system. Each team carries an abundance of material to assist all trail users on the trail systems. Also, each Trail Ambassador has been trained in the identification of invasive species along the trails.
